So how do you really get started? Well first you will need a real plan, and most importantly this plan must be written and not in your head.
If you have a plan in your head, that is where it’s most likely to stay and that’s in your brain and not in real life. Then after you have that you will need to set a real budget. And the important part here is to actually stick to your budget.
I have seen countless relationships ruined because of home projects. One main problem that people commit is getting a second mortgage so that they can pay for the fixes in the home. This is usually not a good idea, because you are losing your equity for your own money.
One tip that we give everyone is to get everything online. The great thing about home improvement is that there are a lot of companies and thus the prices go down. For example you can find great window blinds like these faux wood blinds or vertical blinds online. You would save a lot of money on solar shades like these blackout shades or even if you want to go high tech and get motorized blinds. Or you can opt for roller blinds like these roman shades and bamboo blinds. So get out of your comfort zone and start actually doing things on your project and soon enough you will have it complete!
